Whatever happened to “All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth”? Not to sound like I’m old or anything, but in my day, Christmas list were supposed to be made up of items that were kind of realistic. I would have never asked my father for diamonds or cars on my Christmas list. Of course, if my daddy were to give me a pair of diamond earring, then who am I to refuse his thoughtful gift. Now that would just be rude of me, right?
In the last few years, I have noticed that gifts are getting more and more extravagant and bank accounts are being hit almost to the point of crying. When I was a child, I crossed my fingers for a new Barbie and was over the moon if “Santa” decided to throw in a few Barbie outfits in with it. But this year, all I have been seeing her tweets and post about how children “hate” their parents because they didn’t get them the right iPhone or laptop. That’s right everyone, these kids actually said they hated their parents because they got them an iPad, instead of a Macbook. For example…
But this gift just took the cake for “I know you’re never going to actually use it, but please just say that you love it because of all of the money I spent on it. AKA, You better give me a hug and kiss for this!”.
Feu De Beaumont has released a product for that is so over the top and unneeded, that my bank account would probably find a way to slap me up side my head for ever buying it. The french based company released a $500, get this, CANDLE. That’s right, there is actually a candle currently on the market that is worth the same amount as some Coach and Burberry purses. The candle, named The Golden Porringer, is incase by 22-carat pure gold and is guaranteed to burn for a hundred hours. The candle comes in three different scents: wild fig with cassis and orange blossom, jasmine with patchouli, bergamot and lemon, and oudh is a ‘sweet, woody aromatic from the tropic Agar tree.
Now, I’m going to leave you with these two questions.
Would you ever spend $500 on a candle? What was the most expensive gift you ever gave/received?
